This paper proposes a novel approach for intrusion detection system based on sampling with Least Square Support Vector Machine (LS-SVM). Decision making is performed in two stages. In the first stage, the whole dataset is divided into some predetermined arbitrary subgroups. The proposed algorithm selects representative samples from these subgroups such that the samples reflect the entire dataset. An optimum allocation scheme is developed based on the variability of the observations within the

We call the proposed algorithm as optimum allocation-based least square support vector machine (OA-LS-SVM) for IDS. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method, the experiments are carried out on KDD 99 database which is considered a de facto benchmark for evaluating the performance of intrusions detection algorithm. All binary-classes and multiclass are tested and our proposed approach obtains a realistic performance in terms of accuracy and efficiency. Finally a way out is also shown the usability of the proposed algorithm for incremental datasets.
